On April 2, 1948, 26 people met as the first members of the Lincoln County Historical Society. Their first goals included publishing excerpts from Lt. Theodore Talbot¹s diary of his visit in 1849 to the area and preserving Yaquina Bay Lighthouse for use as a museum. Over the next decade, those goals were met, as well as many others.
The Society focuses on the same goals established early by its members: to preserve, publish, and educate. The Society maintains two historic structures, the Burrows House and a site on Newport's historic Bayfront slated to become the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center, as well as the Log Cabin Museum. It also maintains the CV Tradewinds Kingfisher, Stan Allyn's charter boat, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Society preserves the state's largest collection of artifacts from Oregon's central coast.
